There’s a bit of “buzz” going around about a new beach bar in the British Virgin Islands called B-Line Beach Bar on Little Jost Van Dyke. During our recent BVI sail, after a stop at beautiful Sandy Spit, we decided to stop at B-Line to check it out.
As a point of reference, if you are sitting on Sandy Spit and looking at Jost Van Dyke, Little Jost is just to the right and if you go around the little point, you will spot B-Line Beach Bar. Find the location of B-Line’s on our Jost Van Dyke Map.
According to B-Line owner Christina Washburn who also runs the Bananakeet Cafe and Heritage Inn on Tortola, B-line just opened up for business at the beginning of the year. Christina’s mother moved to this location on Little Jost Van Dyke in 1979 when there was just a stone structure and cistern. Christina would spend time there on school breaks. In 1990, Christina built a small cottage on the hill and extensions were added to the facility in the early 90’s.
She and her husband Bonky have been trying to live permanently on Little JVD for a while, but due to their busy schedule on Tortola, they seem to get there only on the weekends. Once they had the idea to start a bar on property, it took several years to go through the legalities. During that time, they would spend the weekends working on what would soon be B-Line Beach Bar, making more accessible and visible.
Now B-Line is the only establishment on Little JVD. Access is by boat. There is a floating dinghy dock and a dock near the beach for larger boats.
B-Line is open 10a.m.-10p.m. daily and food is served on the weekends.

Talking to Jerry in the bar,
Quieter than some of its neighboring island beach bars, B-Line is a great place to relax, unwind and just listen to the sounds of paradise.
Their slogan? BLine, BHappy & BBack!
